You. GUYS! You will kick yourselves in the shins if you miss Sila Mutungi at the Jambalaya. If you don't kick yourselves, I'll kick your shins for you. He's that good. Do you like lead singers oozzing charisma? Do you like a horn section and shredding guitars? Do you like to dance for hours in a pool of your own sweat? Of course you do. Don't miss this show, y'all.
